JoWood's 'Against Rome' Goes Gold

by Rainier on Oct. 22, 2003 @ 2:17 p.m. PDT | Filed under News

JoWooD and Independent Arts announced today that Against Rome is finished and ready for production. Set in Europe at the time of the migration of nations (about 200-450 AD), Against Rome takes the player to that part of the continent that has not yet succumbed to the Roman Empire. This vast territory, which the Romans disparagingly called barbaricum, is the home of numerous primitive nations. The player takes control over one of these barbarian tribes, who as a whole stood out for a pronounced lack of cultural achievements, combined with a ferocious belligerence. Skirmishes, raids and plunderings were the order of the day for these barbarians and are, therefore, the great theme of this game.
